Double Hung Windows
Double hung windows are one of the most popular styles and you will see them in a variety of houses around your area. They have two sashes that slide up and down. You can have the bottom half open or the top half open or even a little of each. Many people like this type of window because they can tilt it into the house and clean the outside of the window from inside with ease. These windows are very well known and efficient.
Casement windows are also popular and they are the most efficient operating window on the market. These windows are just one large pane and they crank out, away from the house, as they open. Part of what makes them efficient is that when they are closed, they blow tighter against the home. These windows let in natural light well and lots of fresh air when they are open. They also look great with a variety of style homes.
Sliding windows are great for places where you have a wider space to fill and perhaps not as much length. These windows are basically double hung windows turned on their sides. Instead of opening up and down, the slide left to right. They are often seen in basements, hallways, or even in bathrooms high up on the wall, like above a tub.
Picture and stationary windows are the most efficient windows on the market because they don’t have any moving parts. They cannot be opened or closed. They work well if you want a lot of natural light, a good view, and don’t have the need for ventilation. Some people put in large picture windows in certain rooms, or they might have one or more stationary windows in the middle of a bank of windows with the outside windows being ones that can open and close.
While these are some of the most popular, commonly used window styles, there are others on the market to consider, like bay and bow windows, windows of unique shapes, and many others.
